Re: Torsional flex - now a good thing :-)

I'm not sold on torsional flex. That would give you too much noodle board feel. tip flex is another thing. I think that is a good thing. I want to reduce torsional flex while increasing tip flex.

Re: Three strut Hybrid C kites for foiling?

I've got an 8m Enduro. It's reasonable as a foil kite. But not as good as my 2012 cat which was lighter. The Enduro is a bit heavier with a few little batton things and more reinforcement. But it is a better TT engine than my old kite. It has more lift! I'm thinking lighter wave kite would be slight...

Re: under a 9m better a 6 or a 7m for twintip riding?

Easy. Your next size down should be a 7. 9-6 is gap is too big and you will be overpowered/underpowered around 28-30 knots. get a 7 find the top end of that. Then decide if you need a smaller kite. Depending on your style and skill you can probably hold a 7m into 40 knot gusts. But solid 35 plus sho...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

To be honest.No I dont want to ride 6-7 knots... or sub 10 knots. Bigger faster waves riding at speed is interesting to me. Slow maneuverable wings that can't handle fast waves I am not interested in. I'd prefer to be riding a head high plus wave at speed. Below that size the waves are too close to ...

Re: The stagnant foiler.

My current wing is loosely based on the Moses Fluente, at around 560cm2. The Zeeko Freeride wing is probably closest to what I have.

A 750 cm2 high aspect front wing might be interesting.

Re: The stagnant foiler.

Haha. Yeah that's me. I'm at my happiest when it's full on. So I will always take the full on option if it's available.

I will explore the bigger wing idea though. Maybe not a full fat sup wing. But a higher aspect larger wing that will be good at speed but lenc it's self the a bit more stability

Re: The stagnant foiler.

There are people who are deeply passionate about long distance kayaking who never learn anything more advanced than how to dip their paddle into the water and propel themselves forward. Sounds like the stagnation is in your mind, not in foiling. If you want to someday beat Nico around the race cour...
